About Milena

I have been a professional educator for over 15 years - I have taught private voice lessons as well as finance at the undergraduate level. I enjoy teaching because I know what it's like to be a student with questions and knowing that I get to be the person who can enlighten a mind by explaining something in a new way or offering information a student didn't know how to find themselves is so rewarding. I am constantly learning something new myself, and I seek information outside of my disciplines in order to have a holistic approach to learning and teaching.

I have a beginner's proficiency in Chinese, and I am best suited to work with total beginners and children. I lived in China for about 1 year and worked in a bilingual Mandarin/English Montessori school with ages 18 months through 5 years old. My background as a professional singer and knowledge of diction means I pay special attention to pronunciation and the tones in the Chinese language which make it comprehensible and cannot be ignored as you learn! Please send an email with your questions and set up a time to work together!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

I am a beginner level Mandarin speaker with an HSK1 + proficiency. My strengths are my ability to speak tones correctly, as my background in vocal performance has allowed me to learn the accent and tonality of the Chinese language correctly. I am continuing my education and hope to complete my HSK 3 by the end of 2016. I would be best suited to work with absolute beginner level Mandarin learners, including children, as I am teaching my own 3 children Mandarin and had an internship as a Kindergarten teacher in a bilingual Mandarin/English school in Nanjing, China for a school year.

Economics

I served as an assistant teacher for both Macroeconomics 201 and Macroeconomics 202 at Walsh College in Troy, MI.

Finance

I hold a Master of Science in Finance with Specialization Equivalent in Economics. I have worked in the retail finance sector for one of Barron's Magazine's "Top Broker's in America", as well as been an associate professor and researcher of finance and economics teaching Corporate Financial Management and conducting behavioral finance research.

Public Speaking

I am a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre, and Dance with a degree in vocal performance and comparative literature. In addition to performing as a professional singer and teaching voice lessons privately for over 15 years, I have worked as a voice over actor. I also hold a Master of Science in Finance and have honed my professional speaking and presentation skills as a professor where I gave lectures for 5 years teaching undergraduate finance.

Voice (Music)

I am a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, with a degree in vocal performance. I have been a professional singer and voice teacher for over 15 years maintaining a studio in Southeastern MI. I have served as an alto section leader and soloist in Kirk in the Hills and First Presbyterian Church of Royal Oak Chancel Choirs. I have also worked in voice over in the area locally and online as a freelancer.

Thoroughly knowledgeable and personable — Milena helped me with a finance class that had me scratching my head. After her explanations of the topics, I had a much better grasp of the material. ...
